South Beach Diet - Less arthritis pain??

View Full Version : Less arthritis pain??

I just realized, as I reached for my bottle of ibuprofen, that this was the first time I have needed to take it since starting Phase I ten days ago. I used to pop them like some folks eat M&Ms, and I just haven't seemed to need them until today (it's raining my joints are little barometers :lol: ).

Has anyone else noticed that they don't hurt as much? I thought at first it might be because of no potatoes because some folks think that nightshade plants cause arthritis pain, but I've been eating eggplant which is also a nightshade.

I LOVE the unexpected bonus, but was wondering if I'm the only one with it. Thanks.

Marion, that's pretty cool! I don't have arthritis, but I do know that my body has not felt as good as it feels right now in decades! :dance:

I wonder if maybe losing even 10 days worth of weight has made life just that much easier for your joints? :chin:

Wow, Marion... what a great "side effect"! I'm so glad for you!
